Pet of the week: Magic

Magic is a 3-year-old male cat. Magic is a lovable character. He’s not quite available for adoption yet, but soon. His five-day stray hold is up, so the shelter staff had him neutered and vaccinated. Plus, staff have tested, treated, brushed, bathed, petted, and been bitten by him. He was overwhelmed and in pain when he first arrived — he’s turned a corner though. Magic needs to be your one and only, as he’s not fond of other cats or dogs.

Call the Homer Police Department at 907-235-3150 for after-hours animal related emergencies and they will contact the Animal Control Officer on call. The shelter asks that any donations be made to the Homer Community Food Pantry.
